Christmas gifts....

It's no secret I love making all kinds of crafts...I like to make things for others for gifts too. Steve's mom (and mine) usually likes the things I make...she has lots of my stitcheries all over her house. This year I wanted to make something totally different. While making holiday flash cards this fall I came up the idea of a grandkid garland. Next year I will make my mom one but wanted to wait since my youngest brother Matthew is having his first child this spring...then I can add that name to her list.
And look what Teresa gave to me! I LOVE this old quilt she had...she knew I LOVED it too. My mother-in-law rocks and I am not just saying that because she gave me this. Thank you for everything you do for us Teresa!




Usually once a year, maybe twice, I will wear my hair down. The other day I felt like being wild and strutted around town with not a Dorothy Hamil cut or Farrah Fawcett doo but The Sarah Palin. :-) And also wearing that $3 necklace I got last week.
